KEPLER, Johannes.
First edition of this Kepler rarity, the first scientific treatise concerning crystallography. Written in the form of a letter, this small tract was presented as a New Year's gift to Kepler's friend at court, Matthaus Wackher von Wackenfels (who had informed Kepler of the discoveries Galileo had made with the telescope in 1610). "It is not only a charming letter, light-hearted and full of puns, but also a perceptive, pioneering study of the regular arrangement and the close packing that are fundamental in crystallography" (DSB). In the course of this study, Kepler is led to formulate 'Kepler's conjecture,' one of the "greatest unsolved problems in mathematics" (Singh), which was the 18th of the problems David Hilbert presented to the mathematical world at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1900.<br/><br/> "Crossing the bridge over the Moldau in a snowstorm, [Kepler] noticed the snowflakes falling on his sleeve. Being nearsighted, he could closely observe their hexagonal form, each snowflake different from the others, yet all six-sided. His roving mind, always filled with curiosity, began to reflect on the causes behind their pattern. What resulted was a little booklet, a New Year's gift for a friend, the charming tract that is now considered one of the pioneering works in theoretical mineralogy" (Gingerich, p. 10). <i>Strena</i> begins with a typically humanist, playful <i>jeu de mots</i>, suggesting that he is sending "some nothing" (<i>nihil</i>), a pun on the equivalent German word <i>nichts</i>, which is pronounced the same as the Latin word <i>nix</i>, mea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Meteren, Emanuel van:
London [i.e., Amsterdam]. 1610.. [8],244,cxciv,167,[23],37,[1] leaves, including engraved titlepage and portrait of the author, plus 6pp. contemporary manuscript notes. Folio. Contemporary calf over wooden boards, tooled in blind, metal clasps, corners, and bosses. Wear to head and foot of spine, spine leather cracking. Some light scattered soiling and wear, minor worming to margin of last few leaves. About very good. A classic history of the Netherlands and the wars against the Spanish, and an important Americanum with very significant material on the discovery of the Hudson River and the English settlements in Virginia. The author, although Dutch, spent much of his career as a merchant in London, and had extensive commercial and publishing contacts on both sides of the Channel. The first part of his history was published in 1593, followed by subsequent editions, all with added material, including an account of Drake's West India voyage of 1585, the capture of Spanish shipping by the English in 1592, and the Hawkins and Drake West India raid of 1595. This Dutch chronicle has become essential for understanding the activities in London leading to British exploration and permanent settlement in the New World. Though dated 1608 on the titlepage, the colophon gives a London, 1610 imprint. Beginning with the Dutch edition of 1609, Meteren included detailed accounts of the Virginia Company and the English settlement in Virginia. According to Parker, that edition included "the first appearance in print of the first document relating to the Virginia colony...Meteren's abstr … [Click Below for Full Description]

The 12 plates pertaining to the ear are the same as those of Casserius' earlier work; they constitute "the first accurate pictorial presentation of the internal ear" (Lyle M. Sellers, Annals of Otology, LXVIII, No. 3, Sept. 1959). Those dealing with the other four sense organs are new. Among them, in the especially important section dealing with the EYE and VISION (pp. 257--346) are the first pictorial representations of the conjunctival glands, later known as the Meibomian glands (cf. Garrison-Morton 1481). All the plates, according to Choulant-Frank, "are done with unusual care and are anatomically exact." Casserius' anatomy of the sense organs is of great importance in medical … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venecia 1596-1610 - Grabado calcográfico, 26x 39 cms (incluyendo margenes),orientación este-oeste que presenta una imagen imagen positivada con la ciudad de Mallorca a la izquierda. Blanco y negro. Muy buen estado de conservación. Mapa procedente de un atlas italiano del grupo de "Lafreri" que se compilaron entre mediados del s XVI y principios del s XVII. Estos atlas son la culminación de uno de los mas brillantes e interesantes periodos de la historia de la cartografía y son de enorme rareza( Tooley). Roma y Venecia eran los centros de impresión y hoy dia se conocen algo mas de 60 ejemplares,la mayoría de estos en colecciones institucionales( en España hay dos ejemplares en la Biblioteca Real y uno en la BN de Madrid). Los atlas Lafreri eran usados como regalo diplomático en la época y es por ello que la mayoría se encontraban en colecciones reales o principescas. El autor es Donato Rasciotti que basandose en el mapa de Fernando Bertelli publicado hacia 1550 (no borra el nombre del autor y lo mantiene en la cartela), modifica algunos detalles de la plancha. De este autor, Rasciotti, se sabe muy poco y era hasta hace poco desconocido para la historia de la cartografía.Se sabe que estuvo activo en Venecia desde finales del s XVI y comienzos del XVII como impresor de obras menores pero no existía constancia de su labor como impresor de mapas.Este mapa es una rareza y en un estado de conservación impecable. De esta variante no existe ejemplar alguno conocido en colecciones publicas españolas.

PEREZ DE LARA, Alonso
1610 - A handsome, crisp copy of the first edition of this immensely detailed account of how the Spanish imperial administration acted in the spiritual sphere .The Bul[l]a de la santa Cruzada granted by the Pope was a bull granting indulgences to those who fight against the infidel or contribute to the costs of the struggle ( the 'tesoro de la Iglesia militante'). It was first granted to the Spanish monarch in 1509, and was thereafter renewed and its scope enlarged by successive popes. The work gives details of the origins, development and organisation of this, how it was to be preached, how the indulgences were to be offered, the spiritual and financial administration of all connected with the Bulla, together with details of where and how the various editions of the bull were to be produced throughout the Spanish dominions, and to which citieds and towns various 'cedulas' etc. were to be sent, and how worded. There are in part 1 long lists of administrative centres in all of Spanish America, the Filippines etc.The section dealing with the printing of the Bullas is particularly interesting: in Spain they were to be printed in Toledo in the Dominicans monastery of S.Peter the Martyr, and at Valladolid in the monastery of Our Lady de Prado, where Rodrigo Calderon was to be in charge; for the Indies at Seville at the Hieronymite monastery of S.Lorenço, although the actual printing was to be carried out at the Monasterio de Buenavista; for Sicily the press was that at the Jesuit College in Palermo, and the costs were to be born by the Society of Jesus.

Saint Augustine
George Eld, London, 1610. First edition in English of Augustine's monumental work. Translated by John Healey. Folio, contemporary full brown calf. Front and rear panels double-ruled in gilt, gilt floral cornerpieces, spine double-ruled in gilt. Large woodcut printer's device on title (McKerrow 375). Decorative woodcut head-pieces and decorative and woodcut initials, including three twelve-line initials. Binding shows some rubbing with some contemporary marginalia. Overall a very good copy of this scarce and important work, rare in contemporary calf. One of the great cornerstones in the history of Christian thought, The City of God is vital to an understanding of modern Western society and how it came into being. Begun in A.D. 413, the book's initial purpose was to refute the charge that Christianity was to blame for the fall of Rome (which had occurred just three years earlier). Indeed, Augustine produced a wealth of evidence to prove that paganism bore within itself the seeds of its own destruction. However, over the next thirteen years that it took to complete the work, the brilliant ecclesiastic proceeded to his larger theme: a cosmic interpretation of history in terms of the struggle between good and evil. By means of his contrast of the earthly and heavenly cities--the one pagan, self-centered, and contemptuous of God and the other devout, God-centered, and in search of grace--Augustine explored and interpreted human history in relation to eternity.

NERVEZE (Antoine de) [ PASSIER (Françoise de) trad.].
Paris, Anthoine du Breuil, 1610. - in-8. 4ff. 152ff. 7ff. Demi veau, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure moderne dans le goût de l'époque). Seconde édition espagnole, la première complète, des Lettres de Nerveze. En 1605 était parue à Thonon-les-Bains (Savoie) la première traduction en espagnol des "Epitres Morales" du poète français Antoine de Nerveze (1570-1624), secrétaire du roi Henri IV. La traductrice était une femme connue pour ses talents, Françoise de Passier. Cette femme cultivée disparut prématurément sans avoir pu terminer la traduction et par conséquent cette première édition de Thonon-les-Bains ne contenait pas la totalité du texte original. Aujourd'hui d'une extrême rareté, il s'agit de l'un des premiers livres imprimés dans cette petite ville de Savoie. Peu après la mort de sa traductrice, Nerveze prit l'initiative d'éditer à nouveau son livre en espagnol et il confia la réalisation de la présente édition, ainsi que la traduction du fragment manquant, au traducteur d'espagnol du roi Henri IV César Oudin, qui devint peu après le premier traducteur de Don Quichotte en français. Dans la préface rédigée pour cette seconde édition, adressée à "Don Diego Pimentel, Conde de Gelves, del Consejo Supremo de Guerra de su Magestad Catholica y su Castellano del Castillo de Milan", Oudin expose les circonstances de sa mise en chantier: "despues de la muerte de ladicha Dama no quiso el susodicho de Narveza que quedase la obra imperfecta y por esta causa aviendo el cobrado un ejemplar de la impresion de Tonon comunicomelo para que cotejando la traduccion Espanola con el original Fran … [Click Below for Full Description]

Angers: Antoine Hernaut, 1610. Hardcover. Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. (14) ff including engraved title page by Thomas de Leu, 124 pp. Bound in contemporary vellum, title page in fine impression and text very crisply printed, an excellent copy. Extremely rare first and sole edition of this work of polemical antiquarianism, seeking to prove that the remains of St. James the Apostle are not buried at Santiago de Compostella, as Europe's most pious pilgrims had believed since the 9th century, but rather in the vaults of the chapel of St. Maurille, Angers (subsequently destroyed in 1791). An interesting and exceptionally rare example of Counter-Reformation antiquarianism, in which archaeology and considerable erudition is enrolled in the service of confessional, political or material interests. Imagine the result if the theory turned out to be correct-or even plausible: the medieval citadel of Angers, by the 17th century a provincial backwater in the Loire, would have been elevated to the third most important pilgrimmage destination in Europe-after Jerusalem and Rome.Menard relates that at the Holy Synod held in Angers in 1583 it was decided to open a mysterious tomb beneath the Chapel of St. Maurille, a 5th century bishop of Angers. As his work goes on to prove in detail, the tomb evidently belonged to none other than St. James the Greater, among the first apostles of Christ and traditionally held to have been buried at Santiago de Compostella in Northern Spain. Verified by local ecclesiastics, the discovery elicited much joy and celebration by the in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Three parts in one vol. Small 4to, cont. calf (very neatly rebacked, sides a little rubbed). London: F. Kingston, 1610. Second edition, corrected and enlarged, of the most important and most famous English book on the art of navigation, "a book that set the seal on the supremacy of the English in the theory and practice of the art of navigation at this time. It contained a brilliant summary of all the chief contemporary practices of navigation together with a critical examination of their faults, and either the actual means for eliminating them or else sound guidance on the measures necessary to do away with them... "Wright's Certaine Errors was so packed with learning, was such an able survey of navigation practice at the close of the sixteenth century, and by its chart projection introduced such order out of the former cartographical confusion, that it and his other work merit fuller attention than can be devoted to it in a survey of this scope."-Waters, The Art of Navigation in England, pp. 219-20. The first edition, which appeared in 1599 and is a famously rare book, caused a "revolution in navigational science, which for the first time [Wright] based f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Solis y Ribadeneyra, Antonio de (1610-1686)
In 5 books with frontispiece, 6 foldout plates and 2 maps one of which folds out. Books I & II 163 pages; Books III & IV 252 pages; Book V 152 pages. Small folio (14 1/4" x 9 1/2") bound in full original leather with gilt lettering to spine. Translated by Thomas Townsend. First edition into English.Antonio de Solís y Ribadeneyra (1610 - April 19, 1686), Spanish dramatist and historian, was born at Alcalá de Henares (less probably, Plasencia). He studied law at Salamanca, where he produced a comedy entitled Amor y obligación, which was acted in 1627. He became secretary to the count of Oropesa, and in 1654 he was appointed secretary of state as well as private secretary to Philip IV. Later he obtained the lucrative post of chronicler of the Indies, and, on taking orders in 1671 severed his connection with the stage. He died at Madrid on the 19th of April 1686. Of his ten extant plays, two have some place in the history of the drama. El Antor al use was adapted by Scarron and again by Thomas Corneille as L'Amour de la mode, while La Gitanilla de Madrid, itself founded on the novela of Cervantes, has been utilized directly or indirectly by P A Wolff, Victor Hugo and Longfellow. The titles of the remaining seven are Triunfos de amor y fortuna, Eurídice y Orfeo, El Alcetzar del secrete, Las Amazonas, El doctor Carlino, Un bobo hace ciento, and Amparar el enemigo. Amor y obligación survives in a manuscript at the Biblioteca Nacional.

Wellcome,I,4063. ?Giovanni Marinelli (Marinello), nacque nella prima metà del XVI sec. Nel 1563 licenziò il trattato in tre libri, "Le medicine partenenti.." che intendeva fornire consigli pratici in materia di ostetricia e ginecologia; tuttavia, mentre alla trattazione di temi quali la gravidanza, il parto e il puerperio viene sostanzialmente dedicato il solo terzo libro, ampio spazio finisce per occupare la discussione sul matrimonio e sulla procreazione. Il primo libro, infatti, appare incentrato sulle fasi precedenti le nozze, e in particolare sugli accorgimenti utili all?armonia e al buon assortimento della coppia; mentre il secondo esamina aspetti e problemi della vita matrimoniale, prestando speciale attenzione ai disturbi legati alla sessualità e all?impotenza sia maschile sia femminile. .
